My secret santa was incredibly generous and got me Everybody's Gone To Rapture which I've been meaning to play for years so am well chuffed with that. 

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you. :D

 

 

And of course to Santa's little elf @JPR for organising it all again.

I've had a shit year and been unemployed for months now so was only able to afford one game for my secret Santa but I got about 7 from mine and the most presents I'll get from anyone this year I'm sure of it. 

Very, very big thank you secret Santa and also to jpr for organising again. Hopefully I'll be able to be a little more festive next year.

 

I'm going to enjoy working my way through my gifts as some I've not even heard of but are up my alley. I also got nights into dreams which is a nice little throwback too and easier than seeing if the 360 still works :D

merry Christmas everybody!

Hurrah, many, many thanks Santa for The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa, Fell Seal and The Shape-shifting Detective! 

 

A great mix of SRPG, FMV and good lkld fashioned punching somebody in the face-em-up! :D

 

Can't wait to actually play them! 

 

Thanks again Santa and @JPR for organising, as always. Merry Christmas everyone!

An embarrassment of riches here. Thank you very much!

 

Dishono(u)red - Happy Dishonored Day!

 

Drunken Robot Photography - I only knew this one by name. A bullet hell FPS. Looks like fun.

 

Wolfenstein: The New Order - Mein Leiben!

 

Transistor - I thought I already owned this. I guess not. Thanks!

 

Tales of Symphonia - I'd been meaning to pick this up back on the GameCube but never did. I've never played a Tales of... game so this seems a good one to check out when I get the chance.

 

Ikaruaga - New year's resolution: one credit by next Christmas?

 

Sayonara Wild Hearts - stylish

 

Dragon Age: Origins - So many RPGs, so little time. I'll surely be able to carve out time to play this one day...

 

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath - i enjoyed this back on the Xbox. It'll be good to see if it holds up.

 

Teslagrad - I don't remember putting this on my wishlist but it says it's a Metroidvania so it sounds up my alley.

 

Homesick - Another I put on my wishlist without remembering why. Possible walking sim? Looks good, though.

 

Obduction - Without sounding ungrateful, I already picked this up on GOG but forgot to take this off my wishlist. If I reject this gift is it OK for @JPR to have it if he wants, or refund or redistribute at his or my Secret Santa's behest?

 

Sonic Mania + DLC - Again, one I got from Humble Bundle monthly, sorry. I haven't used the Humble key yet, so if anyone reading this would like the base game, let me know.

 

HuniePop - a sexy anime dating sim puzzle game thing. What kind of person do you think I am to play crude match-three games just to see a depiction of cartoon boobs? (Five hours later - I just need one more combo and she'll take off her top...)

 

AND....

 

Hentai Asmodeus - the true spirit of Secret Santa. I suppose this is my monkey's paw for getting all the good stuff above. My Steam recommendations will never be the same again. I'll maybe wait until the kids are in bed before putting this on.

Oh. I’d love Sonic Mania if it’s still available. 

 

No problem. I'll send the key when I'm back on the PC.

Oh balls. 

 

I just wrote almost all them out and then hit back. FFS. 

 

Quickfire version as I need to be sociable,  bloody family. Tsk!

 

Tales of zestiria, pony island, hacknet, total war Rome II, hard west, nights into dreams and hateful days pair.

 

No idea what pony island or hateful days pair are but look like good novelty

 

Amaze. 

 

Thank ee Santa!

One Finger Death Punch 2 is exceptional. I loved the original but found the fact that it was just an endless mess of levels a bit too much. This game is similar in layout but it's easier to understand where the main path of levels is, so progress makes a bit more sense.

 

I still have no idea why my character suddenly powers up and starts obliterating everything, but the core gameplay loop is somehow even better than the first gameand I can't wait to play it more at a time when I don't have the kids constantly asking for stuff!

It's automatically refunded, so I've asked your Santa about it.

Thanks for the replacement of Katamari Damacy. You didn't have to but very much appreciated.

First off thank you to @JPR for allowing me to join in the festivities despite unfortunately not being able to view/post on the forum at the time.

 

Santa's bag has been big and diverse this year:

 

Puyo Champions - As barebones as this release is, Puyo is one of those franchises I feel like I have a special relationship with, so I'm always happy to own more Puyo.

Valiant Hearts - Following last years gift of Ubisoft's take on Paper Mario, it'll be neat to see what they've come up with here.

Reign of Giants DLC for Don't Starve - I loved Don't Starve originally but then it felt like it released too much DLC all too quickly, this had been on the wishlist forever as a result.

Mount Your Friends - How did I not own this already? Fun times ahead.

Sniper Art of Victory - Ah yes, the FPS genre, maybe this will beat my all time fav fps of which I've played many: Goldeneye on the N64?

Metal Slug 3 - First played this one while on holiday to Turkey back in 2004 or so. Full arcade cab! I think the difficulty setting must have been on 1 though because I remember making it pretty far on a single credit, every metal slug I've played since destroys me after the first stage.

Noitu Love 2: Devolution - Sounded like a hentai game at first but no! Seems to be a good looking sprite run and gun. But maybe love is still found in-game? ^_^

 

Thank you for the generosity as always.
